Synopsis:
Wyler's sprawling tale of the West, filled with feuds, vengeance and violent jealousy. In a dry, parched canyon located in the southwest, a rich rancher battles it out with a poor counterpart for water rights. Yet in fact, neither man has control of the precious liquid. It really belongs to Julie Maragon, and she generously allows them both to use it. But when a cultured Easterner arrives with plans to marry the wealthy rancher's daughter, his presence sparks a fresh round of anger and resentment.

Notes:
Shot in Technirama, a widescreen process.
